Saira has been trained from birth for this: to battle one of the Great Ones and retrieve that precious prize. But Rajani is old and clever, and like the Great Rocs before her, she is wise to the ways of thieves.

This short story means a great deal to me. It was the first piece that I decided to try and get published, and it was written very much on a whim. It was originally published on Short-Story.Me! in August 2010, after which it was chosen to be in their second anthology.

I’ve decided to keep it free since it’s already available for free online, but now you can get it for your eReader too.

If you do decide to give it a shot, I’d love it if you could leave a review too.
